I agree that it is better to come up with a general proposal that we accept for all specifications. For this reason I removed select() and child from the first level of CSS Masking. This gives us enough time to discuss element selecting and we don't need to rush it. url(#fragment) for element referencing still needs to be supported for legacy reasons anyway.
